Pure crap, as usual.

Maybe 1 out of 10 is laugh out loud funny for me (the ones with the man sized xbox controllers are great, even if the actuals words in the strip aren't).
The other 9 out of 10 usually stink, like this one.

I agree. The few times they do make me laugh, it's friggin funny.

Very rare though. I'd say 1 out of every 15 strips is funny. Usually cussing makes stuff funnier, but it just makes this sound like more of teh gay.

I'd imagine there's more "I'm so high" comments on XBox Live then in PC gaming.

Really? it's not something I've experianced much, but I know a whole bunch of teens who play X-Box live (wouldn't know how to even install a PC game) who fit the mold.

On PC games, I tend to see more racism or xenophobia.
